I’ve added new pages with lists of books read in 2009 and 2008, thanks to the new Blogger Pages – I’ve been waiting for that for ages! Here are some statistics for last year, which I meant to post in January; they are pretty similar to the previous year.
Number of books read in 2009: 158
Fiction/Non-Fiction ratio: 146 fiction (including 1 play), 12 non-fiction
Male/Female authors: 42 men; 63 women
Favourite book read: The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt. Loved it.
Least favourite: Primitive by Mark Nykanen – not on the list because I refused to finish it
Oldest book read: Anne of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery
Newest book read: Primitive
Number of re-reads: 26
Books in translation: 2 - Last Rituals (translated from Icelandic); Lock 14 (French)
Library books: 27
Finally, a book recommended by a blogger: After the Armistice Ball by Catriona Macpherson was recommended by Juxtabook. There were lots of others, but this one stood out, it was such fun. The third in the series, The Winter Ground, was even better.
